Auburn just beat LSU in the most absurd 18-13 game you'll see this year ... or maybe in your lifetime. Then again, we are talking about a game with Les Miles and Gus Malzahn on the sidelines.

Auburn was given the win after officials took a last-second touchdown by LSU off the board.

That may sound crazy on its own, but the 24 seconds leading up to that moment were equally ridiculous.

Here's how it all unfolded.

* Facing a third-and-16 at the Auburn 20-yard line, LSU's quarterback Danny Etling completed a pass to Malachi Dupre down to the Auburn 10 ... but Dupre was tackled in bounds so the clock kept running.

* On fourth down, LSU was penalized with an illegal shift because one receiver was still in motion when the ball was snapped. One second remained on the clock.

* Some might think such a penalty at that time would result in a 10-second runoff, but LSU was given another fourth down opportunity with no such penalty enforced. The NCAA rulebook, pictured below, explains there was no runoff because it was not a dead ball infraction. Fox Sports' Mike Pereira corroborated as much after the game.

The 10-second runoff rule did not apply in LSU's extra fourth-down chance. NCAA

* LSU's second fourth-down attempt, which had to be snapped immediately after the whistle due to a running clock and 0:01 left in the game, resulted in a rollout touchdown pass from Etling to D.J. Chark, who barely got his toes inside the sideline. Chark was immediately mobbed by teammates in celebration. Unfortunately ...

* LSU did not get the play off in time as the game clock hit zero before the snap. Thus, referees waved it off, leading Auburn to storm off its sideline in celebration to the dismay of the visitors.

It was a wild ending -- one that appropriately fits Miles' time in Baton Rouge, which could be ending soon -- but ultimately the referees got it right on two crucial calls in the final seconds of the game.
